Weekend in Tanzania

Hi!! I just wanted to share some pictures with you of all the great things we did this weekend: As you may know, GRA (Global Ressource Alliance) is committed to supporting orphans in the Lake Victoria region through their partnership with several non-profit organizations in the area. So on Saturday, we got a chance to meet some of the orphans in the GRA office in Musoma. (if you want to find out more about this project, check out their website: http://www.globalresourcealliance.org/aids-orphans-support-program).

Peggy, a really nice American volunteer, did an art project with these children. She taught them how to make “Ojos de Dios”, meaning the “Eye of God”. This is a Mexican ritual symbol, given to children to protect them. And we were only glad to help her out a little. I’m not sure we did such a good job (the “Ojos” made by the children looked a lot better than the ones we did), but we gave it our best shot!

After that, it was time for some recreation: football, games and well … just jumping!

In the afternoon, we visited the Buhare school, were Olivier, Ann-Sofie and Leen will be teaching the students and professors of the CDTI – Buhare and Arusha University. Last week, Klaas and Benoît set up a really nice computer class, with the computers provided by Close the Gap.
